November 29 & 30, 2017 – Self-Regulation: Managing Learning Difficulties and Undesired Behaviour & Decoding the Autistic Brain – A Primer

NeuroSINGAPOR

Two Great Days:

Day 1:

Self-Regulation*: Managing Learning Difficulties and Undesired Behaviour

*Self-regulation is the ability to monitor and control our own behaviour, emotions, and thoughts, altering them in accordance with the demands of the situation. It allows us to respond appropriately and effectively to our environmental demands.

This workshop is an introduction to the elements of self- regulation and its profound influence upon learning and behaviour in school. Many children with conditions such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, developmental trauma and/or other emotional behavioural disorders experience difficulty regulating their energy levels and balancing their sensory systems. This can be disruptive to the learning environment and social interaction. It also produces stress responses resulting in inattention, impulsivity and limited retention of learned information.

Takeaways from this workshop:

  • Learn the different methods of providingappropriate support for children who have difficulty processing sensory information and regulating their emotions.
  • Identify ways to manage the child’s varying activity levels through curriculum activities and adaptations.
  • Understand how to develop therapeutic and attuned relationships with students to support the development of balanced emotional states for optimum learning.
